InDirect Composites - Belle Glass HP

Dream Smile offer dentists the most advanced indirect composites, belleGlass HP achieving the opalescent esthetic appearance more closely characterizes natural enamel like no other composite based material without the wear opposing dentition often experienced with much harder ceramic materials. Studies from the University of Alabama have shown posterior restorations maintain polish and luster for 8 years, making it smooth, comfortable and long lasting. It’s truly the best of both worlds…the esthetics and performance of ceramics with the kindness to opposing dentition of composite.

Light, heat and pressure produce the highest degree of material conversion (98.5%), giving belleGlass superior strength and wear characteristics. The opaceous dentin’s high filler content exceeds 87%, providing exceptional strengths and shrinkage of less that 0.94%, which means better margin integrity and less chance of microleakage.
